But they are coming to our place. And we still feel that our backs are up against the wall. Just because we won last week, that was a good boost. But every week from here on out is crucial.
That's sort of how our season was it's been up and down. We've proven on any day we could play with anybody and beat anybody, and then other times we look like we don't even belong on the field.
A bye week would be nice right now. If the game was today, I couldn't go. It's going to have to change a lot before game time.
It's pretty loud and wild. And they use it to their advantage.
This is probably the worst performance we've all played, together, in the last two years.
We want to be a dominant line and a line that people fear,
When you win, everything is overlooked. When you lose, everything is under a microscope.
It's night and day. Mentally, it's just so much easier. Now you can just go out there and work on the physical and just react. This year, nothing is confusing to me.

We didn't play well enough down the stretch to win. We're hungry to get the rushing game going.
They would've been watching, anyway, but they don't always get a chance to see the Chargers. Personally, it's going to be quite a thrill to play against the Giants. The game means a whole lot, anyway, because of the implications in the way we've started off. It's a must-win game for us.
You can't look down the road and say we should be this or this by the time we play that team. Every game we've got to treat like it's our last.
To come out there in the second half and play as bad offensively ... it's pretty depressing,
I know they can play with anybody. They've proven that in the past. And good luck to them.
The Dolphins had talked about taking me in the third round. But they called me about five picks before their pick and told me their doctor thought I would need surgery. When the fourth round came and went and I wasn't taken, I didn't watch the draft anymore.
I think it's going to be a challenge for us. But we got a chip on our shoulder. The offensive line wants to be known as one of the best lines and for having one of the best running games in the league.
I think I'll be better this year in every aspect. This year there was more of a mental approach to camp and the playbook. Last year I was learning on the run, but this year if I make a mistake I know exactly what it is. I'm playing with more mental confidence.
